Why YOGA is so popular today
Yoga adds "Life to your Years"
The original context of yoga was spiritual development practices to train the body and mind to self observe and become self-aware.
The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Indian Yoga Masters began to travel to the West, attracting attention and followers.
Since then, many more western and Indian teachers have become pioneers, popularizing hatha yoga and gaining millions of followers. Hatha Yoga now has many different schools or styles, all emphasizing the many different aspects of the practice.
Hatha Yoga is a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body-especially the main channel, the spine so that energy can flow freely.
Yoga is also a natural antidepressant remedy that can help boost mental health. By lowering our stress levels, it also lower the risk of depression. Yoga has also been proven to boost brain power. Not only do yoga poses like surya asanas relax and de-stress, but they may actually increase brain function.
Yoga and Spirituality are deeply connected to each other - body, mind and breath, and connect to the inner core of our being - the spiritual aspect of our lives. This Yoga technique or spiritual practice was developed to help achieve unity of mind, body and soul or moksha or liberation.

The 8 Steps of YOGA
We often see yoga as a form of physical exercise. Stretching, toning, increasing strength and flexibility. But actually the shapes you see people make in a yoga class are just the tip of the iceberg. Actually, the word 'yoga' refers to the union between body, mind and spirit.
Ashtanga or the eight limbs of yoga, is a classification of ancient yoga, as set out in the Yoga Sutras. It defines the eight limbs as yama (abstinences), niyama (observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), pratyahara (withdrawal), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (absorption).
These eight steps basically act as guidelines on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. They serve as a prescription for moral and ethical conduct and self-discipline; they direct attention toward one's health; and they help us to acknowledge the spiritual aspects of our nature.
